A World of Thanks!

We want to send a heartfelt THANK YOU to the teachers, students and scientists at all ten Mystery Classes in this year's global game of hide-and-seek! Everyone did a fantastic job compiling such great clues and Introductions, which in turn let us all learn so much about their cities and countries.

We also want to congratulate those Mystery Classes that entered the contest even though they could not be "official" winners.


Finally, we also want to thank astronomy expert and teacher Rod Nerdahl for all the careful work he did again this year compiling the sunrise/sunset data and more! Rod's careful work is essential to the Mystery Class activity and we are lucky to have his expertise!

Year-end Assessment Tools: Showcase Student Learning

As Mystery Class draws to a close, it's a good time to think about projects or presentations for students to showcase concepts learned and skills attained.

Teachers send samples of student work to showcase on Journey North.
